From the Road: The World’s Largest Reuben

Roll Call reporter Shira Toeplitz turned the lens on longtime photog Tom Williams Wednesday as he showed off what looked to be lunch for a family of four and maybe a horse. Actually, it was the “World’s Largest Reuben” sandwich, which they discovered while covering the Altmire-Critz primary. Someone on Critz’s staff suggested they find it at the legendary 40-year-old establishment, The Haven Bar.

“Tom didn’t finish the sandwich, but he got through half of it and took the rest home,” Toeplitz explained to FBDC this morning. “I never tried the sandwich because I was too full from eating my own southwestern Pennsylvania delicacy — a grilled chicken salad with french fries on top.”

This is Toeplitz’s third five-day Roll Call road trip with Williams during this campaign cycle, following trips to Iowa in august and Cleveland in February. “Things are getting serious, too,” she joked. “He met my mom yesterday when we were in my hometown of Pittsburgh.” (Shira got engaged to her real beau in February.)

Toeplitz wrote on Twitter, “This is what a $12 Reuben looks like in Johnstown, Pa. #pa12,”
